The Blue Mountains Granfondo

The Blue Mountains Granfondo

June 13 - June 15 2019
The Blue Mountains, Ontario, Canada

The Blue Mountains Gran Fondo Road Race will be the Canadian qualifier events for the 2019 UCI Gran Fondo World Series.

This year we have changed the event name to The Blue Mountains Gran Fondo from the Grey County Road Race for the following reasons:

To better align with UCI Gran Fondo World Series
We are already following the rules format and spirit of a Gran Fondo
The event starts and ends in The Town of The Blue Mountains
In 2011 the UCI created the UCI GFWS (rebranded in 2016 from the UWCT – UCI World Cycling Tour) as a series of UCI-sanctioned races held all over the world. Feeding into the 2018 Gran Fondo World Championships that are being held inform Aug 30- Sept 2nd in Varese, Italy, there are Twenty-one qualifier events up from fourteen in 2016. In the qualifier events the top 25% from each age group will qualify for the Amateur World Championships, where the champions will be awarded with the coveted rainbow jersey.

My Focus - Introduction
My main goal is to build challenging courses that put the rider’s experience first right here in Ontario. This vision can only be achieved by working with the best people who have gone to great lengths to make this into a reality. Each year we strive to improve the event by incorporating feedback from participants and adopting best practices from the most successful amateur cycling events.

I would like to thank the following groups for their outstanding support of this event: The UCI GFWS, the Canadian and Ontario Cycling Associations, the Ontario Provincial Police, The County of Grey, the Town of The Blue Mountains, Blue Mountains Village Association, Clearview Township, The Town of Collingwood, Toronto Digital Imaging, Wheels of Bloor, Louis Garneau,  VeloFIx, AD-Bikes, Bill Abbotts, Andrew Paradowski & Chantal Thompson, Jessica Prudifant, Jenn Martin and her team of committed Moto Support, the Commissaires, the McCain Family, the Merritt family, the Mrvelj Family, the Scott Family, My family and many others
